ECentres Cork

The E Centres Initiative

The E-Centre initiative is a network of Community Enterprise Centres that were established by Cork County Council in partnership with local business organisations and state enterprise agencies, to support start-ups, entrepreneurs and remote workers among others, in order to provide dedicated co-working facilities such as hot-desking, offices, training centres, conference and meeting facilities and other services to support businesses and communities in the Cork region.

In an E Centre, businesses build contacts, reducing the isolation often felt when starting and running a business. Centres offer a professional environment for your business with no long term commitments and the ability to plan your finances in advance with all-inclusive rates.

10 Reasons you should consider your local E Centre:

  • Hot Desks offer a low cost, low commitment alternative – no capital expenditure required
  • Fully equipped Office Space, complete with telecoms & secure high speed broadband
  • Electricity, heat, rates & housekeeping included
